Sam Rockwell joins comedy The Sitter

Jonah Hill

Sam Rockwell is set to join Jonah Hill in druggy babysitting caper The Sitter .

The actor, most recently spotted in Iron Man 2 and currently filming the awesome-looking Cowboys & Aliens , is in final negotiations to play a drug dealer.

Alongside Curb Your Enthusiasm 's J.B. Smoove, he makes life hell for Hill’s college drop-out babysitter, who is looking after three kids as a favour to his mother while also attempting to score some illicit substances for a girl.

Small wonder Hill refers to the movie as “an R-rated, fucked-up Adventures In Babysitting -type of movie” considering that batty premise.

With Pineapple Express ’ David Gordon Green directing, this sounds like an R-rated companion piece to his earlier drug-fuelled adventure, and is set to open on 15 July, 2011.
